While you’re enrolled at Clarion, you can get involved in a variety of different activities and fun events. Whether you’re looking for one-time events or ongoing special interest clubs and fraternities, you’re going to find them at Clarion University. There is also much to do beyond the Clarion campus.

One of those opportunities could be the Building Bridges Program, in which student participants work toward improving relationships between diverse groups by gaining a better understanding of cultural and ethnic differences within these groups.

Once you graduate from Clarion, you can continue your involvement with the university by becoming an active member of the Alumni Association. By joining the Alumni Association, you can stay in touch with your college friends, participate in alumni events, and assist students who are seeking advice as they prepare for graduation and seeking their first job.

You will also have the opportunity to network with other alumni for job opportunities through the Alumni Association Career Services. And you may enjoy working at various charitable events, such as “Party for a Purpose”.  There is an ongoing and active connection for all Clarion graduates through the Alumni Association.
